Instrumentation of a discourse is literally that: an instrumentation (for piano) of a discourse, the one George W. Bush pronounced the 14th September 2001 in the Grund Zero. At the same time, instrumentation of a discourse implies also that which, years later (2005), this discourse is as well, maybe reinforced by the characteristic staging of an instrument managed through words and patriotic symbols, maybe also reflecting a certain utopia in the way in which the reaction or non-reaction of the instrument is taken into the extreme in the second part of the piece, a kind of reverse of the first one.
